Join artist Kathy Hinde on a walk that follows the route of the hidden river Frome as it flows through culverts beneath the city. Starting by listening live on hydrophones before the river plunges underground, Kathy will continue the walk by playing back a series of soundscapes recorded under the Frome as we walk along ‘River street’ and ‘Wade Street’ together, tracing the pathway of the Frome, imagining its underground journey, to be reunited as it joins the floating harbour at castle park.
Kathy will be joined by a guest who will share some unique insights into the history of the river Frome and its rerouting through the city.
River Echoes Deep Listening Walks are transmitted live onto wireless headphones offering an enhanced listening experience of a live mix between the usually inaudible underwater soundscape and amplified sounds of the surroundings interspersed with a conversation between the walking guides.

Highlights from the Listening Walk will be available to listen to as a podcast after the event.
River Echoes is part of a collective investigation into Bristol’s waterways. A project by Kathy Hinde with producer Sam Francis, Commissioned by Ginkgo, and sponsored by Bouygues UK.
